How to keep cool at 160 miles per hour
No, Jon and I will not have air conditioning however you can bet both of us know all too well how critical it is to keep our brakes as cool as possible. Lucky's brakes both front and rear utilize the same cooling ducts used in all R model GT350s. The front apron of the GT350 R model's had openings that attached to large cooling ducts that allow outside air to help dissipate heat from the brakes. All of the cars run by TEAM CALIFORNIA'S BEST utilize the same set-up.
